Hildegard of Bingen Sophia

Hildegard celebrated Sophia as a cosmic figure in both her writing and her art.
Sophia, in Catholic theology, is the Wisdom of God, and is thus eternal.

Celebrate St. Hildegard's Day!

Sophia!
You of the whirling wings,
circling, encompassing energy from God
One wing sweeps the earth
and the third flies all around us.

Praise to Sophia 
Let all earth praise her.

Come!
